Consider a 2-D object consisting of two triangle compartments, as shown in Figure P9.4. Suppose a solution containing a 511 KeV gamma ray emitting radionuclide with concentration f = 0.5….
what is the maximum moment that can be supported without failure in either tension or compression?
2. A piece of wood has the dimensions shown in figure 7.10a. The wood has the following properties:
a. If the wood is loaded in compression in the x direction (see figure 7.10b, what will be the load in pounds at failure?
b. When wood is to be used as a column, it will be loaded in compression parallel to the grain. If deformation needs to be limited to 0.02 inches, what is the maximum load that can be applied?
c. If this piece is to be loaded like a joist in bending (i.e., load applied to the narrow edge, with the long dimension as the height), what is the maximum moment that can be supported without failure in either tension or compression?
